METAL HANG TAGS CRAFTING BARGAIN

Now that our monsoon season is over, let's get back to fun stuff, like these cool craft related items I found while out shopping yesterday.  For those with a TARGET store nearby, I thought I'd give you a heads up for these pretty neat craft items.  They are metal hang tags that could be used for any number of interesting craft projects or maybe even organizing.  

Chalkboard metal tags
Above is a set that is made with chalkboard paint so you can write on them with chalk and to label and/or identify something.  They have twine string to tie them onto whatever project you are using them for.

Galvanized metal hang tags
This set is galvanized metal, pretty neat and old fashioned looking.  You could of course write on them or better yet, use an adhesive label of some sort to identify whatever you use them for.

Metal storage tin
They are only $1.00 per package and with four per package, that's really only 25 cents per tag, not a bad deal all things considered.  I bought four of each (they also had copper) and then I found this little metal storage container that was also only $1 as well.  I need to hit another Target store to see if I can find a few more (occasionally, the Target Dollar section has 50% off all items).

Just in case anyone is near a Target and would like to get these, I wanted to give you a heads up. 

Now I need to figure out what to use them for.

Thank you for the heads up on the tags.
Uses:
tree ornaments with person's name on them
Great for labeling holiday packages / gift tags
plant markers
home canned goods / homemade treats

Oh that is a really clever idea! Thanks for sharing!

These would be great for labeling vegetables and flowers. Part of a wire coat hanger bent with a hook at the top could hold them. You are THE Master at Bargain-Hunting!

I've got a Target near me and I am going tomorrow to look for these. Love them! Thanks!

What a bargain.

I use either plastic spoons with permanent marker or cut up a plastic jug or pail and make my own.

Ooh I like the idea of tree ornaments. I also had a random thought of using them as napkin rings. Great ideas, thanks!!

Thanks for the tip! I went to Tarjay today and they still had some of the galvanized tags as well as some small galvanized stars left. Bought those and some extra twine and gussied up some plain terracotta pots. You do find some of the greatest stuff!!
